Pale, bright yellow. Shows captivating perfumed lift for the vintage, offering scents of pear, lime, lemon drop, white peach, white flowers and powdered stone, plus a whiff of spicy oak; very Chassagne-Montrachet. Suave, brisk and intensely flavored but adamantly dry and even a bit austere in the early going, with citrus, crushed rock and iodiney mineral flavors dominating. Very brisk and light on its feet, especially in the context of the year, but with no shortage of sneaky intensity. Finishes with a subtle whiplash of flavor and slowly building length. Softened nicely and showed more thickness with time in the glass but I doubt I would have picked this blind as a 2015. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media

 

The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers was mute on the nose when I tasted it from barrel, clearly not coming out to play. The palate is balanced with a lightly honeyed entry, moderate depth but needing to show a little more nervosité towards the finish. Probably best enjoyed earlier rather than later unlike some of the other Chassagnes from the domaine. I would like to see more terroir expression develop. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

 

Tasting note: There is an interesting lemon-lime character to the notes of apple, matchstick and citrus, all of which is trimmed in soft wood. The rich and again relatively full-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract that is buffered by the citrus-inflected acidity that renders the lingering finish agreeably dry. Lovely. Allen Meadows – Burghound - Outstanding
